Tree ring/root

I have a property that has a tree root pushing up the tree ring blocks that were all previously installed. They want to keep the tree rings but have me redo it. So I can raise it about 2 inches before everything will be to high and out of the grass. I could also make the ring just 1 block bigger but will either of these options be long lasting or will the tree root just push them up again in a few years? Any ideas on other options would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I had one like that, this is what I did, as the roots grow it will probably have to.be repeated or grown, depending.on how big you do it at first

So what I did was take brick, really any work I let the client pick.the one she liked, then I cut a 1inch trench in a circle around the tree, so the bricks could fit then I did another layer on top about 5" tall in total. Then filled it with compost for a flower bed. Looks way better.then a plastic ring!
